Mine. Loisel believes she lost the necklace in the cab after their departure from the ball. She is certain she felt it in the vestibule just before they left. 

"I . . . I . . . I've no longer got Madame Forestier's necklace. . . ."

 He started with astonishment.

"What! . . . Impossible!"

 They searched in the folds of her dress, in the folds of the coat, in the pockets, everywhere. They could not find it.

"Are you sure that you still had it on when you came away from the ball?" he asked.

"Yes, I touched it in the hall at the Ministry."

 "But if you had lost it in the street, we should have heard it fall."

 "Yes. Probably we should. Did you take the number of the cab?"
